Kodak Moment #77

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from Motor City Comic Con 2000.

Cowabunga Corner goes through a lot of hard drive space on computers because of the videos and photos used for the blog.  Interviews, panels, reviews, and so much more are all saved for multiple uses, which puts us through a lot of different hard drives.  Cowabunga Corner is always needing to upgrade and move the files around to keep them all in order.  We do reuse old files when needed, so deleting is not an option on the video.  Now, it has come time for another upgrade and we’re asking for help.

Turtle Bug

As a child I got into a game called “slug bug”, it was the only real car game I became a huge fan of.  If we saw a VW Beetle we would hit the person next to us and say ‘slug bug “color”, no slug back’.  I grew up loving VWs, we had VW vans and both my mom and dad had owned bugs when they were younger.  This made it so a VW beetle was my dream car, it was one of the few cars I could tell apart from all the other cars on the road.  I was disappointed when the first car I had was not a bug, then I got my dad’s van.  When I moved onto the next car I finally got my dream car, a VW Beetle 2000.  This is the Turtle Bug and here’s it’s story.

Michaelangelo - The spelling

When Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the Ninja Turtles, they named them after the famous artist.  This is known through all of the different medias of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  And through the years there’s only one name that changed in the way they spell it.  From issue 1 of Mirage TMNT Volume 1, Michelangelo’s name was spelled Michaelangelo.  There was an a right after the h.  Though in 2000, there was a change to that spelling.  This was only mentioned once in character, in an area only the online fans know of.
